Marco Rubio joins three presidents -- past and present -- for World AIDS Day panel

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., will join some of the biggest names in politics and entertainment today for a panel discussion on World AIDS Day. Today's event is sponsored by  ONE and (RED), organizations that are committed to combatting global poverty and AIDS.  

The panel, at George Washington University, also include President Barack Obama. Former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will participate by video. It'll be moderated by Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent. 

Bono, the co-founder of ONE and (RED) and lead singer of the band U2, along with singer Alicia Keys, will also participate.  Other panelists include Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.,  Muhtar Kent, president and CEO of The Coca Cola Company, and Kay Warren, founder of the Saddleback Church's HIV and AIDS Initiative.

Rubio's office says he will "highlight his continued support for effective and accountable foreign assistance programs, particularly the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), in addition to promoting collaborative efforts to combat AIDS involving the private sector, non-profit organizations and the faith-based community."
